*: Unladen vehicle
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is the legal identifier for your vehicle. This is the primary identification number for your Lexus. It is used in registering the ownership of your vehicle.
This number is stamped on the top left of the instrument panel.
This number is also on the Certification Label.
The engine number is stamped on the engine block as shown.
Engine oil selection
“Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” is used in your Lexus vehicle. Use Lexus approved “Toyota Genuine Motor Oil” or equivalent to satisfy the following grade and viscosity.
Oil grade: ILSAC multigrade engine oil.
Recommended viscosity: SAE 5W-30.
SAE 5W-30 is the best choice for good fuel economy and good starting in cold weather.
If SAE 5W-30 is not available, SAE 10W-30 oil may be used.
However, it should be replaced with SAE 5W-30 at the next oil change.
The 5W portion of the oil viscosity rating indicates a characteristic of the oil
which allows cold startability. Oils with a lower value before the W allow for
starting of the engine in cold weather.
The 30 in 5W-30 indicates the oil viscosity when the oil is at its operating temperature.
An oil with a higher viscosity may be better suited if the vehicle is operated at high speeds, or under extreme load conditions.
How to read oil container label: The ILSAC (International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee) Certification Mark is added to some oil containers to help you select the oil you should use.
Iridium-tipped spark plugs Use only above spark plugs. Do not adjust gaps for your engine performance or smooth driveability.
*: The fluid capacity is a reference quantity. If replacement is necessary,
your Lexus dealer.
Using automatic transmission fluid other than “Toyota Genuine ATF WS” may cause deterioration in shift quality, locking up of your transaxle accompanied by vibration,
and ultimately damage the automatic transaxle of your vehicle.
